Boxia shares debut Drumcode EP, ‘Ethereal Education’
Drumcode’s Swedish patriarch, Adam Beyer, immediately recognized Boxia’s potential and DJ savvy upon their first meeting in 2016. Soon after, Boxia signed over “Revolution,” as his inaugural Drumcode release. The self-described “rave anorak” also released his colorful, deeply nuanced brand of techno and tech-house across coveted label destinations such as Alan Fitzpatrick‘s We Are The Brave and Huxley‘s No Idea’s Original.
The Ethereal Education EP as a whole is emblematic of Boxia’s ability to fuse staunch acid lines with effervescent melodies. However, the stand-out moment on the four-part EP is the nostalgic title track. “Ethereal Education”‘s vibrant, 90’s-reminiscent synth work is driven by a floating, otherworldly vocal cut, paralleling Boxia’s earlier, retro work.
